Here are my four blocks for the October Dresden Fan. I included a ruler on one block to show proper placement to get the blocks the same size and so any winner will be able to place the blocks into a circle and have all the edges match. The 45 degree line on the ruler should run through the diagonal of the block, between the two center petals. The outside edge petals should just reach the 6 inch mark and the quarter circle should be 3.25 inches on the edges. Many thanks to fellow block lotto participant Robin, who supplied me with her template and a photo of how she laid the fan on the back ground block. I began with a 7 inch block and after careful placement and sewed the pieces down, I trimmed the block to 6.50 inches square. I have five blocks in my sewing room that do not qualify, all of those I attempted to construct without the use of the ruler and Robins template. My advice is to use Robin’s template and the lines on your ruler and you will avoid blocks that don’t turn out correctly. It’s easy if you use the right tools!
